Even though winter doesn’t slip away until next weekend, time has its marching orders. In the United States, it’s time to “spring” forward. Daylight saving time announces its entrance at 2 a.m. local time Sunday for most of the country. Standard time hibernates until Nov. 6. It will stay lighter for longer into the evening but the sun will rise later in the morning than it has during the months of standard time.
If you're dragging today, or feel like an extra cup of coffee is needed, pushing the clocks forward an hour could be to blame. And two state lawmakers in New York want to change the cycle of "falling back" and "springing forward" with the clocks twice a year when the seasons change.
(WWLP) – The clocks were set forward an hour early Sunday morning for Daylight Saving Time. The change in time brings extra sunlight at the end of the day. However, until people acclimate to the change in time, there can be greater sick on the roads. “That means we have to be careful about drowsy […]
PROVIDENCE — Could this be the last time we set our clocks ahead? If Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse has his way, the answer is yes. Whitehouse is sponsoring legislation titled the...
(CNN) — My least favorite weekend of the year is upon us. It's the weekend in which I feel the effects of losing an hour of sleep because of the switch to Daylight Saving Time (notice the singular) from standard time. For others, this weekend is a happier time because we just gained an extra hour of daylight at the end of the day.
Every year, on the second Sunday in March, mom of two Jennifer Sanger is jolted awake by her bright-eyed and bushy-tailed 4-year-old son yelling, “The sun is up and the moon is down. Wake up, Mommy.” The time is an inhumane 6:30 a.m. As she reluctantly rolls out...
CLEVELAND (WJW) — Northeast Ohioans on Sunday woke up to wind chills in the single-digits and more snow in the forecast, but Daylight Saving Time that began overnight brings hope along with more daylight as we head toward the first day of spring. Excitement has been building with sunset times reaching the middle of the […]

War is the worst evil that people have inflicted upon one another, at costs to themselves, since some hominid discovered the lethal efficacy of rocks. It is waged continually somewhere or other in every generation, furiously now, in Ukraine, and fitfully in the Middle East and Africa. The recurring horror has paused on a global scale—holding its breath, you may feel—only because, post-Hiroshima, nuclear weaponry bodes suicide for the next power to use it. Or so we have thought, and perhaps still think, but with shaken complacency. What never ends is the primordial emotional tug toward organized mayhem, which is playing out, yet again, in Eastern Europe in the face of widespread revulsion. Putin: Monster! But a madman? Diagnosing him as such assumes that sanity is the normative state of people with power.
Your time change stories: Here’s what you had to say about daylight saving time messing with your schedule
Considering we JUST sprang forward, time wise, we had to ask: Has the time change ever ruined your day? Or even your week?. Have you ever forgotten something important due to “springing ahead?” What, exactly, was the event or calendar item that you missed? Was it a disaster, or something you can laugh about today? (You can still enter a response, if you have something in mind! It’s not too late).
After all, the Brackley-based squad has had many low-key winters in the past only to then turn up at the first race and blitz the opposition. Even last year, when Mercedes appeared to be fully on the backfoot as it couldn't get on top of its car in the test, it still managed to overhaul Red Bull to win the season opener.
CD sales in the US for 2021 increased for the first time in almost two decades, according to data published by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Shipments rose from 31.6 million in 2020 to 46.6 million in 2021, and revenue from the format rose from $483.2 million to $584.2 million. The RIAA’s numbers corroborate a similar report from MRC Data published earlier this year.
It appears Tom Brady kept leaving the door open for a potential return to the NFL for a reason. On Sunday, three days before the official start of the 2022 offseason and just one month after announcing his retirement, Brady revealed on social media that he is, in fact, coming back. Forty days of retirement was apparently enough, because the legendary quarterback is now -- once again -- set to start for the Buccaneers.

“We have to call this what it is,” Volodymyr Zelensky said, late last month, a few days after Vladimir Putin had ordered the invasion and conquest of Ukraine. “Russia’s criminal actions against Ukraine show signs of genocide.” President Zelensky, who lost family members during the Holocaust, and who also happens to have a law degree, sounded suitably cautious about invoking genocide, and he called for the International Criminal Court in The Hague to send war-crimes investigators as a first step. But such investigations take years, and rarely result in convictions. (Since the I.C.C. was established in 1998, it has indicted only Africans; and Russia, like the United States, refuses its jurisdiction.) The only court that Zelensky can make his case in for now is the court of global public opinion, where his instincts, drawing on deep wells of courage and conviction, have been unerring. And by the end of the invasion’s second week—with Putin’s indiscriminate bombardment of civilian targets intensifying, and the death toll mounting rapidly; with more than two and a half million Ukrainians having fled the country, and millions more under relentless attack in besieged cities and towns; and with no end in sight—Zelensky no longer deferred to outside experts to describe what Ukrainians face in the most absolute terms. “I will appeal directly to the nations of the world if the leaders of the world do not make every effort to stop this war,” he said in a video message on Tuesday. He paused, and looking directly into the camera, added, “This genocide.”
Another weekend, another parade of horrors in New York City. One homeless man killed in cold blood, another wounded. To watch the video of the murder, where the killer chillingly nudges the sleeping man, then shoots him at point-blank range, is to see evil personified. Two women employees stabbed at the Museum of Modern Art by a deranged patron who had been banned from one of the city’s cultural centers. And a 3-year-old girl, bloodied by a crazed man who attacked her in a wagon. A man who had punched a 9-year-old in December, who had been arrested eight times before, yet was...
